Overview

How did the movement founded by Jesus transform more in the first seventy-five years after his death than it has in the two thousand years since?

From Christ to Christianity offers an informative and understandable summary of the development of Christianity in the New Testament and post-Apostolic eras. James Edwards tells the story of how the Christian movement—which began as relatively informal, rural, Hebrew and Aramaic speaking, and closely anchored to the Jewish synagogue—became primarily urban, Greek speaking, and gentile within the first Christian generation, spreading through the Greco-Roman world with a mission agenda and church organization distinct from its roots in Jewish Galilee.

This book not only demonstrates how, by the early second century, the church attained the characteristic qualities to become the Christian church as we generally know it today but also shows how the witness of the early church can encourage today's church. It also includes several maps.

    I've read about half of the book. I'm interested into it and I'll finish it. But I can already say that, although I find the author good and interesting, he often reports news in a clumsy and inaccurate way as well as without the support of appropriate bibliographical references (which in books of this kind is certainly not an irrelevant thing). The list of inaccuracies is too long to be reported. I point out only the following: - Origen, who was himself martyred by the Romans - Irenaeus wrote Adversus Haereses in AD 150 - The "seven deacons" of Acts 6 - Peter (whose influence in early Jewish Christianity was second only to James)
